New Research finds that Adhering to an Anti-Inflammatory Diet is associated with Significantly Lower Risks of Dying from:
1) Any Cause,
2) Cardiovascular Causes, and
3) Cancer.

The large study - 68,273 Swedish men and women aged 45-83 years who were followed for 16 years - was published in the Journal of Internal Medicine.

THE DIET

Anti-inflammatory foods include fruits and vegetables, tea, coffee, whole grain bread, breakfast cereal, low-fat cheese, olive oil and nuts.

WHICH FOODS DON'T HELP?

Pro-inflammatory foods include unprocessed and processed red meat, organ meats, chips, and soft-drink beverages.

DIET ADHERENCE vs PARTIAL ADHERENCE ?

Participants who Most Closely followed an anti-inflammatory diet had:
1) an 18% lower risk of all-cause mortality,
2) a 20% lower risk of cardiovascular mortality, and
3) a 13% lower risk of cancer mortality,
...when Compared with those who Followed the Diet to a Lesser Degree.

Smokers who followed the diet experienced even greater benefits when compared with smokers who did not follow the diet.

"Our dose-response analysis showed that even partial adherence to the anti-inflammatory diet may provide a health benefit," said lead author Dr. Joanna Kaluza, an associate professor at the Warsaw University of Life Sciences, in Poland.
